THE UNIVERSITY OF ST. THOMAS educates leaders of faith and character through a Catholic liberal arts education that is both accessible and affordable. Founded in 1947 by the Basilian Fathers, Houston’s Catholic university offers 36 undergraduate majors, 19 graduate degree programs, and engineering, law, and health pre-professional programs. The most popular majors are biology, psychology, nursing, finance, and education.

In April 2017, St. Thomas opened the Center for Science and Health Professions. This new building houses many of its science, technology, engineering and math programs. With more than 100,000 square feet of facilities, students have opportunities to conduct original research alongside professors.

Thanks to its location in the heart of the historic Museum District, museums, art galleries, restaurants, and shops sit within walking distance of campus. The proximity to downtown and the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, provides opportunities for research, internships, jobs, and networking with Fortune 500 companies and world-renowned hospitals.

Students who live on campus in the Guinan Residence Hall enjoy a fun atmosphere. Campus life includes more than 80 student organizations, social events, ministry projects, and fitness opportunities. Intercollegiate athletics include women’s volleyball, and men’s and women’s soccer, basketball, and golf. In 2018, St. Thomas will add men’s and women’s cross country teams.
